The Mill Valley Film Festival (MVFF43), presented by the California Film Institute, announced the set of films selected for the 43rd edition of the Festival, from October 8-18, 2020. The Festival will present acclaimed films from the 2020 Cannes Film Festival, the Berlin International Film Festival, and other Festivals around the world.

We focused on the French program (directors and actors) but – there are many more…
Here is the list, if in French, all have English subtitles:

  • Banksy Most Wanted – Documentary (2020): directors Aurélia Rouvier and Seamus Haley do a deep dive into the many different theories about the artist’s true identity.

  • The Father – Movie by Florian Zeller (2020) – This black-comedy is one of the outstanding hits of recent years. It has won several awards in Paris, London, and New York. Anthony Hopkins is the Father. The movie is in English.
  • Jumbo – Movie with Noemie Berlant and Emmanuelle Bercot (2020) – One of the most talked-about films at both Sundance and the Berlinale this year, Jumbo is a neon-lit fable of an unlikely romance that unfolds in the after-hours of an amusement park. From the first-time director Zoé Wittock.
  • My Donkey, my Lover & I – Comedy (2020) –  A fresh take on the oft-overlooked meet-cute subgenre city-girl-meets-country-mule, this bright comedy centers on Antoinette, a Parisian school teacher (Laure Calamy, Call My Agent!) who impulsively decides to stalk her married lover on his familial hiking vacation astride an adorable ass named Patrick.

  • Spring Blossom – Film by Suzanne Lindon (2020) – In one of the year’s most striking debuts, writer-director-actor Suzanne Lindon firmly establishes herself as an artist to watch. Following a failed attempt at teenage fun, her eyes fixate on a handsome man during her familiar walk home. Let’s mention that Suzanne Lindon is only 20 years old!
